Bar Lock 4, 1892 Columbia Typewriter Co. of New York
With an ornate copper shield and double keyboard, this typewriter is a handsome machine. The black keys are for uppercase and numbers while the white keys are for lowercase and figures. The type-bars stand up vertically behind the copper shield and swing down, to type onto the top of the platen (roller). One would see as they typed, if they sat up straight in their chair and looked over the shield!
